The group will be meeting in the center of La Paz at around 8:00 in the morning, and we'll depart by car en route to La Cumbre 15,420 feet above sea level, our trek's starting point an hour away in the frosty Andean highlands. We'll trek up 646ft to reach El Choro, an ancient pre-Inca trail which was incorporated into the famous and extensive Inca Trail network. Along the trail we'll descend through the splendid Andean mountain landscape, in certain areas the trail has even been paved with stones by the Incas. We'll arrive at our destination, the village of Challapampa, after a 6hr descent through this astounding landscape. Here we'll set up our camp for the night.
